In the MODS-MARC map, <note> with type=bibliography maps, like most 
other notes, to 500.  However, in the MARC format, a bibliography note 
is tagged 504. 

We are using LC's conversion tools and would like all our bibliography 
notes to map to 504, whether they're mapped in from MODS or input 
manually through our ILS.

Am I missing something, or is this something that could be  revised in 
the MODS-MARC map and  the conversion tool?

Thanks again!

Jane
